About Me

Hi there! I am Altynay from Kazakhstan. Currently, I live in Almaty, but if there is any chance you want to see the beautiful sea in Kapshagay city (it's where my parents live), then I would be happy to host you. Update: these days I am very busy, therefore wouldn't be able to show you Kapshagay.

BUT! I live in a so cozy (in my opinion) and not so big flat in Almaty near the Circus, that's why I would rather invite you to live up in Kapshagay. So if you are OK with staying in my apartment, I would be glad to host you.

Three things which describe as a person:

- Easygoing
- Open-minded
- Empath

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

That was a note back to 2013-2014. Will update the profile soon...
UPD. I am fully vaccinated.

I like the idea of meeting different people from all over the world. Isn't it amazing? Places without people mean nothing. Interacting with people and seeing how they live, say in Oslo, and at least for one day live the life of the visiting country. See the world, feel yourself alive, talk to people, make friends - that's what my looking for.

2016. 9 am, I am sitting in the office in hot Almaty, while right at this moment, someone might be just coming to Kazakhstan... or someone just took a plane to Australia. Oh man, I can't tell you how I feel, but it feels so good.

2021. 16:15, sitting at a coffee place and looking forward to the trip to Kyiv :)
